5 Things About Google Slides You Did Not Know - Teacher Tech

5 Things About Google Slides You Did Not Know - Teacher Tech | Scriveners' Trappings | Scoop.it
This is a little cheating as some of these features are new so you could not have known!! Google Slides is one of my favorites. I use it to have students GIVE ME information rather than get information. Truly transformative for teaching.

Free Technology for Teachers: How to Create Google Scholar Alerts

Free Technology for Teachers: How to Create Google Scholar Alerts | Scriveners' Trappings | Scoop.it

Google Scholar, like Google Books, is one of the research tools that high school students often overlook. Searching on Google Scholar is not like searching on Google.com or searching in any other public search engine.

Gone Google Story Builder - Use Docs and multiple authors to have fun "Writing"

Gone Google Story Builder - Use Docs and multiple authors to have fun "Writing" | Scriveners' Trappings | Scoop.it

Description by The Scout Project

 

"Story Builder is designed to make writing fun for students. Users can name up to 10 different characters. They may then enter text from each character, building a story. At the end, they may set their story to music and watch it all play out on the screen. To use the Story Builder, simply select "Get Started." Then enter character names in the boxes on the left hand side of the screen. From there, you may enter the text for each character. Next, choose from seven different styles of music. Once you have selected music, the story will begin to play, accompanied by the soundtrack. Students may also give the story a title and get a short link, which can then be shared. The program is best used with elementary and middle school students."

This Sheep Is Mapping The Faroe Islands By Wandering Around With A Camera

This Sheep Is Mapping The Faroe Islands By Wandering Around With A Camera | Scriveners' Trappings | Scoop.it

"How do you get Google to visit your small, remote island group with its Street View vehicles, and digitize your roads for the benefit of locals and tourists alike? If you are the Faroe Islands, then you exploit your local resources to roll your own Street View, in the hopes of attracting Google's attention. Behold: Sheep View 360, a solar-powered 360-degree camera, mounted on a sheep's back. Sheep View takes advantage of one great Street View feature: You can upload your own images to Google's service. So Durita Dahl Andreassen, working for the tourist site Visit Faroe Islands, decided to kick-start the Faroe Islands' entry by putting the camera on a sheep and letting it wander free, then uploading the photos."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

This is such a rich story; using technology in a pre-industrial way to exploit the attractions of an isolated set of islands. This could make a marvelous multi-disciplinary inquiry and I can just imagine students mounting cameras on their pets to tell the stories of their neighborhoods.

I think this is my favorite mapping story of the year...I'm sharing this just because I can.  Google wouldn't originally bring its Street View-recording cars to the islands (part of Denmark), so a solar-powered, ovine-mounted camera was put to work.  Fact can be stranger than fiction.
